The Annual Hanley Awards is the high point of the year for our owners. This black-tie gala is held on Saturday night at each Getaway. It is an Oscar-like awards program recognizing video excellence in our HVSN studios.
Be a winner at the Hanleys!
It all starts in April and May when studios begin submitting their best projects of the year in several categories to a panel of judges. Then, on Wednesday night of the Getaway in July, three nominees are announced for each category. At the Hanley Awards our Master Ceremonies Andy Conte (who is a studio owner and who coined the term "The Hanleys") announces each category, reads the names of the nominees, then open the envelope and reads the winner's name. As the winner comes up to accept their award we show a short clip of the winning entry on our big video screen.
Here's a list of the categories that we recognize:
Best Photo Keepsake Video
Cut and Paste Award for Editing
Best Video Production
Best Event Video
